CITY OF MALOLOS – Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado proudly reported that Bulacan received more than 40 awards in the past three years due to good governance.

The governor said this during his State of the Province Address (SOPA) held at the Bulwagang Senador Benigno S. Aquino Jr. inside the Capitol Building on July 2, 2013 coinciding the opening of the 8th Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Said awards include the Regional Gawad KALASAG Hall Of Fame Award as the Most Disaster Prepared Province In Central Luzon, Consistent Regional Outstanding Winner On Nutrition (Crown) Award, Seal of Good Housekeeping, Central Luzon Excellence Awards For Health (Health Governance Stewards Category) and Outstanding LGU, Provincial Peso Partner In Luzon, i-Pinoy Rice Achievers Award, Special Citation to Bulacan- PDRRMC for Having Implemented Commendable Programs and Projects on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation, Regional Kabalikat Awardee (LGU Category), Sandugo Outstanding Local Government Executive Award, and Most PWD-Friendly Province among others.

Alvarado also mentioned in his SOPA that 295,000 Bulakeños benefited in the Kapitolyo sa Barangay wherein 855 visits were conducted together with other officials and employees of the PGB that offered services such as medical consultations, dental checkups, laboratory tests and others.

Meanwhile, more than 423,000 packs of relief goods and 267 emergency kits have been distributed to disaster victims while 303 families were given materials to be used for the repair of their damaged homes.

The governor also explained that PGB is working hard to deliver effective and quality service to the public.

“Pinagsikapan nating patuloy na mapabuti ang sistema ng pamamahala kung kaya’t ating ipinatupad ang Biometric Timekeeping System sa Kapitolyo upang mapagbuti ang pagtatala ng time entries ng mga kawani. Bukod dito ay binuo ang Bulacan Hospital Information System upang magkaroon ng mas maayos at accurate na sistema ng pagtatala ng admission at rekords ng mga pasyente, halaga ng singil at bayarin ng pasyente, PhilHealth, at iba pa na gagamitin sa mga pampublikong ospital sa lalawigan,” said Alvarado.

He also cited the creation of the Record Keeping System of the Bulacan Provincial Jail that resulted to efficient management of inmates’ records, implementation of audit trail or IT-supported systems that strengthened the security and fast retrieval of information.

The governor’s report also featured the 77 multi-purpose buildings that were built in different villages and 800 relocation houses for the relocatees in the town of Bustos and Pandi.

Alvarado added that the PGB is currently negotiating with the National Housing Authority for the relocation of the said residents.

He also shared the successful information dissemination in the province that reached a wider coverage in cooperation with the League of Cable TV Operators in Bulacan and Radyo Bulacan.

“Tayo ay naglunsad ng programang pantelebisyon na ipinapalabas sa mga local cable channels sa buong lalawigan, ang Galing Bulacan kung saan dito ipinapakita ang iba’t ibang atraksyon, produkto, likas na yaman, sining at kultura na ipinagmamalaki ng lalawigan. Samantala, sumasahimpapawid naman ang Radyo Bulacan 95.9 FM upang magbigay ng malawakang impormasyon tungkol sa mga bagong kaganapan sa ating lalawigan,” the geovernor said. ###
